Discuss Together

Why did Jesus come? What is the Good News? 

When you see something amazing, you want to tell others all about it! Maybe you saw a beautiful sunset of orange and pink, or maybe it started to snow and you wanted to call a friend and tell him. When something wonderful happens to you, you want to tell others the good news! Maybe you got a new puppy or made a new friend at school. That is how the shepherds felt after they saw Baby Jesus. The men were so happy. They had heard the angels singing, they had just seen a wonderful baby, lying in a manger in a stable, just as the angels had told them. The shepherds were thankful to God for everything they had seen and heard. They were thankful to be a part of this wonderful night. As they went back to work, they told everyone they saw the good news that Baby Jesus was born.

Luke 2: 18-20

18 And all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart. 20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them.
